Former cop Brian O'Conner partners with ex-con Dom Toretto on the opposite side of the law. Since Brian and Mia Toretto broke Dom out of custody, they've blown across many borders to elude authorities. Now backed into a corner in Rio de Janeiro, they must pull one last job in order to gain their freedom. As they assemble their elite team of top racers, the unlikely allies know their only shot of getting out for good means confronting the corrupt businessman who wants them dead. But he's not the only one on their tail. Hard-nosed federal agent Luke Hobbs never misses his target. When he is assigned to track down Dom and Brian, he and his strike team launch an all-out assault to capture them. But as his men tear through Brazil, Hobbs learns he can't separate the good guys from the bad. Now, he must rely on his instincts to corner his prey... before someone else runs them down first.

Prior to this film's release in April, 2011, the fake news outlet "The Onion" held an interview with the movie's fake screenwriter, a five year old boy. The interview lampooned nearly all elements of the film, from its simplistic plot, to the over-reliance on special effects, and the quality of the acting. When asked how many more sequels are in the works for the franchise, the young screenwriter replied "six hundred." See more »
During the final chase, you can see three kinds of police cars: Civilian Police (black and white), Military Police (blue and white) and Federal Highway Police (yellow and blue). You will not find Federal Highway Police cars inside the cities, they only patrol the interstate highways. See more »

SPOILER: After the credits roll, Agent Fuentes (Eva Mendes) comes in with a file to Hobbs' office. He asks if the file contains news on Dom and says he is not interested when she says it doesn't.

Now when a long running series like The Fast And The Furious get sequels it is always a challenge to go out and try impress movie goers.
However the series always tops itself with the recent sequels and Fast Five proof that's anything is possible with the right minds.
The plot this time take place after Fast and Furious 4 left all with Brian O'Conner played by Paul Walker, Dominic Teretto Played by Vin Diesel, Mia Toretto played by Jordana Brewster head for Brazil to escape the law after a job with Vince Played by Matt Schulze went wrong.
Which leads to them being hunted by Luke Hobbs Played by Dwayne Johnson who along with Elena Played by Elsa Pataky begin to hunt them down.
Also returning are Roman Played by Tyrese Gibson, Tej Played by Chris 'Ludacris' Bridges, Han Played by Sung Kang, Gisele played by Gal Gadot.
Reyes Played by Joaquim de Almeida who serves as the Film Main Antagonist.
Story wise the plot is very good because it features the return of many of the characters from the series which is very good and moves the series along. Plus the film requires you to pay attention or you'll miss something. Plus you see the characters grow in this film from the last films.
What drives the film like the other films is that the stunts from start to finish that defines The Laws of Physic and why I love this series because the cast and crew are always driven to push the limits and hold nothing back, Fast Five is the example of it.
There is just a lot for this film that I recommend seeing for yourself where you'll be amazed and how you can do a sequel with the right minds.
With awesome stunts, great action and plot you'll be glad you watch this film.
I give Fast Five an 8 out of 10
